Blitzer: I gave Damon the same advice I give all aspiring journalists. You first need the basics — a good, solid education. Second, you need the curiosity and passion surrounding journalism. And, then, you need to practice. If you want to be a tennis player, you need to practice. If you want to be a cellist, you need to practice, If you want to be a reporter, you need to practice. Work for the school newspaper and radio/TV station. Get out there and report. Do it every day. If you have the basic skills and if you practice, you, too, will be a good journalist.
